I use a #12 round or bismark tip & squeese till you see the cupcake bulge a bit. I dont measure the amount of filling but stop when filling oozes slightly from the hole. Hope that makes sense! icon_biggrin.gif

It is tip 230. It is a longer tip. You can find it individually or purchase it in wilton's 12 piece cupcake decorating kit. You can fill it untill you can see the filling slightly coming out at the top. Pretty easy to use.

I don't use a tip. I use an apple corer. Make a hole in the middle of the cupcake. Fill it with icing, then put the top back on. i get that idea from someone else on here. You are able ot put more frosting in the middle that way.

It is tip 230 and stop filling when the cupcake starts to bulge. I have found this is the easiest method to use and the best in my opinion because an ample amount of filling is in the cupcakes. I don't like to be chincy! icon_biggrin.gif
